Alaska State Fairgrounds
The Alaska State Fairgrounds is all of 297 acres of land, which hosts a variety of events like the Alaska State Fair. It is also home to Raven Hall which is another renowned events space. The picturesque setting and great atmosphere adds to the overall experience. The Fairgrounds are also rented out for private events.
It's only once a year and there's always something new. To avoid crowds try going on a weekday. Also look into their early bird special or food drive days for special admission prices. Don't miss the agriculture (huge cabbage), live stock (petting zoo), flowers, etc. Look around before you buy from venders (sometimes you can buy the same item for less in the next booth). Get a funnell cake or some fried cheese and have a blast!
There was so much to see! I grew up in the midwest and couldn't believe all the amazing sights and sounds! This was such a fun trip! If you have never seen a head of lettuce bigger than a car, you HAVE to go! It had all the usual little pony-go-round ride for the kids. I was a little homesick until I saw all this! There's also a little "wild" touch to the place. You know you aren't in "Kansas". It's sooo incredible, the country, the people, the atmosphere! GO! SEE IT ALL!!!

The Alaska State Fair is a place for families, friends, couples, and vistors. There are many things to do : rides, music, talent show's, food, art, singing, parties, fireworks, shows, concerts, and anything you would enjoy. I have been going to the fair since I was born, and there has never been a dull moment at the fair. I would recommened the fair if you want to have a blast, fun, and a good, exciting time. I hope you will, and do enjoy the fair.
The AK State Fair is fun for the whole family...you could easily spend the whole day there...there is so much to see and do! Not to mention the HUGE produce! All that AK daylight in the summer makes for some really large veggies! If you happen to be in the area then, stop by and check it out.
